of your books. now, our panel today, as you know, is about ladybird johnson, an oral history, and it involves a total of 18 years' worth of interviews with ladybird johnson . and indomitable will come lbj in the presidency, the interesting thing about these books is that ladybird memories and history leading up to the presidency, and where it leaves off mark up digress book about lbj begins, and it is a tapestry of voices commenting about lyndon b. johnson. michael gillett who assembled ladybird sorrell history directed the lbj library oral history program from 1976-1991. he later served as director of the center for legislative archives at the national archives and is currently the executive director of humanities texas in austin. he is the author of launching the war on poverty, an oral history. to my right mark of the growth is the current director of the lyndon baines johnson presidential library and museum in austin, texas. a post he assumed in october of 2009. an award winning author and presidential historian, he has written three books relating to the american preside
the tet offensive, johnson resigning deciding not to go for another term. later on you have nixon, the assassination of martin luther king and bobby kennedy, the democratic party is wild convention in chicago so a lot of books on 68 and in 69 and that sort of thing. there's also a very good book on 1964 which makes pretty much the same argument as i do you sense did a year earlier, and i wouldn't say if look i'm the only person that's right about this, but 65 did seem to be the time of who was the most dramatic, 68 probably was in terms of the world shattering events, but it was a time when the 50's and the early 60's rapidly vanished from or began to vanish from view in ariana the reasons you will probably ask me that, that's why. >> i pretty much agree with you that there's something more at stake in your book at least i think so. in any way we could even be talking about the 60's and just talking about where 65 fits into the 1960's but there is a claim in your book about how 1965 transformed america. and so they're in that statement it seems to be that you are saying that ameri
in the '60s bride mentioned the is in my preface. somebody said 1968. that was huge. tet offensive, johnson resigning, and the assassination of martin mr. king, bobby kennedy the wild convention in chicago, woodstock and that sort of thing. it is by no means unique that makes pretty much the same argument that i do i don't have a huge coral with that. in terms of world shattering memorable events then it began to vanish from a view in a hurry. there are real reasons you asked me that but it is why. >> i agree the central year and we could talk about the '60s two talked-about transforming america to say america is not the same after 1965? there is something at stake that 65 bid is meaningful and there is a way one could argue it is not but to have the watershed year is that correct? >> pretty much. not to take it too far but to something starts on january 1st then it is all done to see a lot of things happening in 1965 like the women's movement. you do have the beginnings of it the feminine mystique publish 1963 but but now zero and tell later the same thing is true with television shows and
. >> may i have a moment just to read the conclusion of mr. johnson's book? my ultimate vision is that the housing finance of the real estate system that is sufficiently flexible to fit the capability of every individual family. we should define a system that shows people what they are able to afford and builds momentum towards ownership by giving them savings vehicles come counseling and information. if people of equity and want to use it, the system should make judgments about how much to let them use. the system should allow flexibility and economic capacity and should invite all film is to think of homeownership and prepare for it. but shoko is that when i read this. what was driving a was more and more debt, more and more leverage. that was the only thing cne and freddie were interested in. their business as mortgages, said they wanted more of them. the bigger house, a lower down payment, higher mortgage. whatever it was infallibly to increase their profit potential because that's the system to make a private public system was devised. >> great comic thank you. we are deli
, johnson resigning, not going for another term. nixon's election, the assassination of martin luther king and bobby kennedy. the democratic party's wild convention in chicago. so, a lot of books on '68, a lot of '69, woodstock and altamont and that sort of thing. so, i'm afraid my book is by no means unique. there's also a very good book on 1964, which makes pretty much the same argument as i do, only he sets it a year earlier. i don't have any huge quarrel with that. i wouldn't say, look it, i'm the only person that's right about this. but '65 did seem to be the time, not the most dramatic. '68 probably was in terms of world-shattering memorable events. but it was a tame when the 50s and the early '60s rapidly vanished from -- began to vanish from view in a hurry, and the real reason is -- you'll probably ask me that but that's why. >> host: i think i pretty much agree with you that the central year, for the '60s, is 196 5. but there's something more at stake in your book. at least i think so. i want to probe on that. in a way you can either be talking about the '60s and just talking abo
at that time as mr. johnson may have alluded to. what i did do was encourage him to reapply once the four year period -- a disqualifying crime means four years from the time of the conviction until the application needs to pass, so i did encourage him to apply after that four year period which would be september of 2013. second point they would like to make it seems pretty clear to me and it did at the time of the hearing that the law is specifically crafted to disallow individuals with convictions such as this from operating a tow truck for four years. he fits the definition of the individual that you should not allow to drive for four years pretty well, and the conduct we find egregious. the conduct occurred with a tow truck so it makes is more relevant -- >> hold on. >> [inaudible] >> it was more relevant, so that being said -- >> please. let the -- >> with that being said i think the decision was reasonable, and prudent. the problem was of course, and i think that's what the confusion was for this board, at the previous hearing. the problem was the police procedure, and i won't go thro
there was a record shown that was represented as mr. johnson's criminal history, and that was the dmv record, court records. i cannot share with you the criminal history information. it's not the document and the information. it's not allowed under law, but i can tell you the court records show there was in fact a conviction at that time, and so that what that is. >> officer, you're also away i believe that mr. johnson is prepared to not appeal the bay tow denial and want to keep the nelson. >> nelson -- >> the other way around. >> did i get that incorrect? >> yeah. bay bridge. what's it called? bay bridge. >> and we would get confused and even when the application was first filed -- if you have a copy of the application it was difficult to get through, and our clerk carol anderson was trying to help mr. johnson -- she helped him type in the section for the application he already held a permit for bay bridge tow at that time so he didn't fleed to apply for that again. >> i guess my last question then it's hard to read that dmv record. >> the dmv record isn't relevant here other than the fact th

, and the person you are to do this study was jim johnson. johnson came from a small town of benson minnesota. i went there. didn't find much. [laughter] from these humble beginnings johnson became a big operator in the democratic party. he worked for the residents campaigns of gene mccarthy, ed muskie, george mcgovern, walter mondale. in fact, almost everybody he ever backed for the presidency ended up losing. and they didn't even come close. but that didn't matter because he was a smart fella with great contacts in washington. so johnson did the study about whether to give up the charter. and the answer came back as in no way. for the shareholders, the government backing was just too valuable. it may fannie mae could borrow money very cheaply and make huge profits, and pay huge salaries to the happy few. all the while supporting the ideal of a nice house in a white picket fence for everybody. so fannie basically made a deal with the devil. it was going to keep its privileges, and is going to do whatever it have to do to defend those privileges in congress. and as fannie became more political,

of it budget dispute. critics of president johnson complained that the federal budget did not really reflect all of the obligations of the federal government so lbj appointed a commission to try to settle this debate and in 1967, the commission decided that agencies such as fannie mae should be included in the federal budget. in the case of fannie mae that would have added something like $2.5 billion. well, we couldn't really admit that they -- we were spending all that money subsidizing home mortgages so what lbj dusted off the idea. they provided for the sale of fannie mae to private shareholders. here is johnson's signing the bill. fannie mae would still have a charter from the government and it would still have a role in public housing policy so it was still going to look and feel a lot like a government agency. no one seems to have thought very much about whether there was a contradiction here between having a public policy role but being owned by private shareholders wanting maximum profits. officially, the government would not guarantee the debts. in fact the government would offici
